It's official - we moved!

Monday, November 2, 2015

In case you thought I have been hiding under a rock somewhere...

We have been so busy lately with moving our store to a new location, retail season in full force for the holidays and not to mention...we decided to move homes! We have been looking at houses here and there. Not regularly, but if one came on the market that we liked we would take a look. We found our forever home - one we can raise a family in and grow old together. It's perfect. I have yet to take pictures but here is one from the listing until I get around to taking some.

As far as updating, everything is pretty much staying the same. We will paint just to make it our own but other than that it was move in ready! We couldn't be happier! I am excited to decorate and will do my best to recap it on the ol' blog. Stay tuned!

Life Lately + Walker's Nursery

Monday, September 14, 2015

Hey guys! Long time, I know. My life right now could not be more exciting! First, my very best friend, Hannah, is expecting her first baby early next year - February 4th to be exact. She asked me to design her nursery and I was thrilled - I love home design and more-so spending other people's money - haha, (totally kidding) ;) 

Second, the store has out-grown our current space so we are moving across main street to a new location about twice the size! make things even crazier, Corey and I will be moving in a couple of weeks to our second home. My mind is in overdrive right now but do not mind it in the least bit. I love staying busy and always having something to do.  I thought this would be perfect timing to get back on track with the ol' blog to keep all of my ideas in one place. 

So far, Hannah has giving me free reign to do absolutely whatever I want with the nursery. She already decided on a crib and glider but they are both neutral so it is like starting with a complete blank slate. 

Lamp // Rug // Laundry Basket // Crib // Leather Pouf // Glider // Peter Pan Art // Bedding (pictured below)

There is already a dresser which will be used for a changing table. We will need to just give it a good painting. I am obsessed with navy here lately and love it paired with a rich brass or gold. I found this great link for some inspiration via Pinterest. 

So far, my favorite is Hale Navy by Benjamin Moore.

Here is another picture of Hale Navy paired with gold accents. 

Still left to decide on:

Ceiling Lighting?
Wall color - thinking a light grey
Pillows for Bed

I'll keep y'all updated on the progress - both baby and nursery! 

Currently Craving from Furbish Studio

Monday, July 6, 2015

Hey guys. I wanted to share some of my favorite things from furbish studio right now. I narrowed it down to 10 and it was a task just doing that. I love just about all the products they carry - well some can be iffy, but my style has definitely turned more eclectic these days so I love when they mix modern, vintage, name it all in one place. 

A lot of these items are definitely splurges instead of savings and also not to mention not in my budget (*sigh*) but I love to go to their site and look for inspiration. 

For instance, I ended up ordering some palm beach pillows from Etsy and paid $30 for 2 pillow covers as opposed to $85 for one. And that fringe garland is something I could definitely make... when I have the time. I think the garland would be so fab draped across a fun mirror or on the mantle to give it a little piazza. You can also find ginger jars for a steal via craigslist, antique stores, etc. Furbish Studio also has sales in the fall and on Black Friday that I always look for some savings. 

Current Obsession | Antique Persian Rugs

Friday, June 19, 2015

There is just something to be said about antique rugs. They are timeless and effortlessly chic -- like bright pieces of art that can add a statement to any room. See some of my favorites below. 

I love the bright red, pink and blue hues in this one. 

I searched online for a while and decided to check out a local store in our downtown area. I wanted something for under our kitchen sink. We purchase a small 3x5 bright rug and absolutely love it. I like the "Heriz" rugs which have a lot of tribal and geometric patterns compared to floral. 

I wanted my first rug to have pinks and red in it to be more fun! I love the one we picked out. 

I know this is just the beginning of a wonderful relationship. My next one I will be saving up for is for our dining room. We have a light egg shell blue/greyish for our paint color so I'm thinking a bright vibrant one with classic white drapes from Ikea since there will clearly be a lot going on from the rug. 

I also posted a good source for buying persian rugs online from: Shea at Studio McGee (Guys if you aren't following her blog yet, do it! You won't be sorry. 

It is always nice when someone does the dirty work of researching for you. Thanks Studio McGee!

The Look for Less | Heron Wall Art

Thursday, April 30, 2015

I wanted to share some steals and deals because nothing makes me more excited than getting a good deal...I mean I can always justify a purchase if I'm saving money. My husband tends to disagree. 

I have been swooning over this piece from Ballard Designs for like ever...Love it.  

The price tag, not so much. The smallest one starts at $149 and goes up to $469. day I was randomly in Bed Bath and Beyond and came across this...

I decided not to buy it then because I did not want to buy anything on a whim. I am trying to do better on impulse buying and making sure I know exactly where I'm going to put something and to make sure I have the room for it - a constant struggle. 

Anyways, my birthday was coming up and I mentioned it to my mom and turns out we found it online and could use a coupon code..HEY. We ended up getting it for under $80 with free shipping. Total score in my book. 

Here's how it looks in my living room. 

Loved how it turned out. I'm actually working on a project at this very moment - it is drying in the basement as I write this post. I'm redoing a table I brought over from my grandfathers and painting it a deep royal blue.  I will do an update once it is finished. Thanks for reading!
